hi guys. this is really random but i have a question, or rather i am seeking peoples opinions. i already have a couple of tattoos that are related to my addiction to travelling: a sun on my right bicep, a hawaiian god on my left and a nautical star. for the last six months or so i have been considering getting the word "wanderer" tattooed below the star, as the style of travel i favour is the wandering with no fixed itinerary kind. however i don't know if this is a bit naff or not. i would really appreciate people's honest opinions about this because i have been thinking about it for a while and i just can't decide whether to do it or not. cheers, joey

Jeez, I read that really fast and thought you wanted to tattoo "wanker" under your star.

No kidding tway but i skimmed through that and thought exactly the same-weird, ay!

I think that that is pretty kool-it has more meaning to you and its not as naff as having someones name on you-which is a bit old hat now!-but wanderer-now people are going to ask what its about-which is kool!

I would hate to have a tattoo that other people have got-i'm funny about things like that-i like to be different, something that is meaningful to me and that no-one else understands unless i tell them!

Hey Joey Naff or not, the choice is really up to you ... you are sure to find someone, somewhere that will be fascinated by your tattoos, and what is written underneath them

I know a guy who got the usual rose with a name through it, but he got his own name. I thought that was cool.

Girl / boyfriends may change, but at least your own name usually stays the same

Quoting Wocca

Girl / boyfriends may change, but at least your own name usually stays the same

My boyfriend has a tribal-tattoo on his right leg with the 1st letter of his name and its really cool for him cause he loves that tatoo! But once.. I asked him if he could do my 1st name letter..and he say that he couldnĀ“t do that cause our relationship couldnĀ“t work out and having my "name" on tattoo could be embarrassing for him!!
I would love to see my 1st letter cause it was a "proof of love" (or something like that)... but otherwise.. Has you said Wocca... Girl / boyfriends may change... soo... everyone do the tattoo that you want..and you like!!

Speaking from a girls point of view who HAS tatoos. Very sexy. specially when they mean something personal.

I'm getting another one soon that I'm designing myself but I cant decide where to have it any opinions? I'm thinking ankle
